Castle 1410 or any 4.5 will do nice.

Castle 1410 is the best motor currently available iMO.. runs cool and fast. A MM, MMp, MMM, RX8 and a few others will do the job for ESC. If you get the MMp stick with a servo known to work or plan on running a bypass or external BEC other than that they all work great.

funny thing is almost 60% of the people i hang out with that run castle or other brands have to have a bec. I run the spectrum s6040? and i have never had any issues with the 3 esc i used. On the other hand, my buddy with a mmm,2650 in a buggy and slash had glitching issues with his very same brand servo... so i guess it depends on servo and maybe esc? my hitec 7955tg has never done anything either, but then i have seen cars that have hitecs glitch as well

Yea I got the wrong one, for some odd reason I thought there was only one and it was 4000kv. I really wanted to compare the 1410 to the 4000kv tenshock but Ridley already did and loved it. I'm sure you will also!

Their 6 pole 1/8th scale motor looks impressive also.

Not josh, but my opinion is the 4000kv is perfect. It's torquier than the 1410, but also more battery mah thirsty. Also, 5mm shaft, so no collar thingy. I love that tenshock motor, i think it's the ideal motor for this truck, honestly. I can absolutely pull and/or keep up with tekin 4.5's on the straight on occasion. It's about 50/50, neck and neck.

Thanks for the info Salad, so just to be clear I currently have the losi cf towers, they could be drilled to accept the standoffs as well or I can get the taller towers from SNR? Any drawbacks to using the stock height towers with the big bores? Thanks

If u have to run 2s then the Castle 1410 with mmp/rx8. If 3s then the castle 1415, 1512 1y, or tekin 2650kv with the mmp/mmm/tekin rx8.

Any ideas on how I can increase stability? My car loses the rear end when I get on the back straight. Feel like I'm fighting the car the entire race and I can't drive it the way I do my buggy.

5-7-3 Losi Diff Oil.

Shock weight is stock 30.

Camber is -2 all around with about - 1 degree toe. out

I'm using Dustin Evan's setup for both indoor clay and outdoor dirt, just swap tires out (Green JC Barcodes for clay, Green JC Goosebumps for dirt).

http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/L...howdownRd2.pdf

The only change I made was 40Wt up front and 30Wt in the rear to compensate for the heavier rig (he uses a lightened TLR chassis I think), and I use stock diff grease/Losi Smart Diff grease in the diffs.

I use carbon towers, lightened HD outdrives, aluminum rear hubs and pivot supports (0 front, 3 anti squat, 3 toe in rear) as per the setup sheet as well. Oh and my rear sway is stock 2mm. The truck is very stable and jumps well.
